Skeeter you were a wonderful man. I will miss seeing you at the Scout Office and our sit down chats we often had. I could always count on you when I needed checks signed at the office. You would always remind me when you were going out of town. You will be truly missed. I love you dear friend. Until we meet again, Jeanne

Skeeter was a kind and gentle man . always smiling and always upbeat. He and Larry were friends for many, many years. There is a void in many hearts now with the passing of such a good man. My thoughts and prayers to his family as I know their pain and sadness. I am sure4 my Larry met Skeeter with a drink of Old Grandad ready for him when they met again in Heaven.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
